The eye doctor will conduct a physical exam of the eyes and also do vision screenings using eye chart tests, pictures, and letters, which tests the child's visual acuity, or ability to see form and detail of objects. Correcting poor visual acuity is very important in a child's sight development.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT), is a noncontact, noninvasive imaging technique that can reveal layers of the retina by looking at the interference patterns of reflected laser light. OCT offers the ability to detect glaucoma years in advance compared to other testing options.
For adults, a regular eye exam is an important part of maintaining your overall health and making your vision last a lifetime. Without an eye exam, critical health issues can be overlooked until it’s too late.
Adults aged 19 to 64 should have an eye exam at least once every two years and people with diabetes should have an exam at least once a year. Other health conditions may also warrant more frequent eye examinations.
Super Foods for Your Eyes
Here are the top 10 super foods to help keep your eyes at their optimal health.
- Sweet Potato
Sunglasses UV Protection
- Sun damage to eyes can occur anytime during the year, not just in the summertime, so be sure to wear UV-blocking sunglasses and broad-brimmed hats whenever you're outside.
- Don't be fooled by clouds: the sun's rays can pass through haze and thin clouds.
- Never look directly at the sun. Looking directly at the sun at any time, including during an eclipse, can lead to solar retinopathy, which is damage to the eye's retina from solar radiation.
- Don't forget the kids and older family members: everyone is at risk, including children and senior citizens. Protect their eyes with hats and sunglasses.
